Birnin Zana

The first time I laid my eyes on The Golden City
I was amazed at all itís beauty and splendor
Skyscrapers nestled between rivers and mountains
A scenery that only the imagination could render

In this true symbiosis of technology and nature
People go about their way wearing colorful clothes
Thereís a sense of peace and harmony amongst them
When their king walked around without being grandiose

This society is a wonder of scientific advancement
Respectful of the environment and its protection
Itís a utopia that this country has kept a secret
A paradise on earth that is close to perfection

I long to visit the city and the towns in the countryside
Converse with itís citizens and all that theyíve achieved
Marvel in the science and fellowship of this nation
Witnessing the creation of all that theyíve conceived

But through all these descriptions there is just one flaw
Is that Iíll never be able to travel for this endeavor
And itís because this is part of a cinematic universe
Even with the passing of their king Ė Wakanda Forever
Author's Note
For the The city of your dreams (and its flaws?) competition.

RIP Chadwick Boseman
